morning to all
I received this in my email, got a chuckle, is your laugh for the day.


No nursing home for us. We'll be checking into a Holiday Inn!

With the average cost for a nursing home care costing $188.00 per day, there is a better way when we get old and too feeble.
I've already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn.
For a combined long term stay discount and senior discount, it's $59.23 per night.
Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon.
That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special

TV movies.
Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc.
Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap.
$5 worth of tips a day you'll have the entire staff scrambling to help you.
They treat you like a customer, not a patient.
There's a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free.
The handicap bus will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp).
To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.
For a change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus and eat at one of the nice restaurants there.
While you're at the airport, fly somewhere. Otherwise, the cash keeps building up.

It takes months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.
And you're not stuck in one place forever -- you can move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to city.
Want to see Hawaii ? They have Holiday Inn there too.
TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem.. They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.

The Inn has a night security person and daily room service. The maid checks to see if you are ok. If not, they'll call an ambulance . . . or the undertaker.

If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life.

And no worries about visits from family.. They will always be glad to find you, and probably check in for a few days mini-vacation.

The grand kids can use the pool.
What more could I ask for?

So, when I reach that golden age, I'll face it with a grin.

To all of you approaching 50 or have REACHED 50 and past, this email is especially for you...

I'm only sending this to my 'old' friends.
I love to see you smile.

Good morning all.

Itsky...sounds good to me. Hope to see you at the Holiday Inn soon.

More snow on the way!
celeste5 3/18/2013 8:30:28 AM Report


I didn`t see your late post last night, left my apartment around 8:20.
I didn`t party, although I`m just staggering distance from the local bar.
I would like to have a game of pool one day, my brother he would stop by and we could do that.
celeste5 3/18/2013 8:54:45 AM Report


Not a lie, just a mistake, I told you I left my apartment at 8:20. it was 20:9, still brain fog this morning, time for my walk now.
bounder 3/18/2013 10:43:38 AM Report

Good morning Celest5 and all,went for a couple hrs in the afertoon 20 perch.What is 20.9 did you mean 9:20?
bounder 3/18/2013 10:44:34 AM Report

Thanks to all for the happy birthday wishes.
seriously 3/18/2013 10:59:14 AM Report

Celeste5, I just meant, did you have a celebatory drink - not that you are of an Irish decent. I know differently.

mallet 3/18/2013 11:09:04 AM Report

Morning Folks...

Bright and cool out here this Am, wind has pushed the ice off shore again, in and out, in and out, just like a .... ,well you get the idea!!

These morning chores list seems to get longer and longer, or I get slower and slower, maybe a combo...

Not sure about these forecasts though bright sunshine at the moment, of course that could change in the next five minutes or so, but we can hope it doesn't. Yes I remember that April storm 17th to be exact, was doing night shift at the Tube mill, came out to about 18inches of snow, cars stuck everywhere, zigzaged through the underpass, and made it up St Georges Hill, only to meet a stuck grader, guy tried to push too much of that heavy wet snow. Managed to get past him and then the daughter wanted to go to work at Sentry, never asked me again after that ride and a little fancy show off spins in the parking lot, fun times....

You all have a great day out there...
celeste5 3/18/2013 11:11:50 AM Report


I told you I still had brain fog.
I meant 20 minutes to nine, safer to write it this way, no mistakes.

Man, I was cold on my walk this morning, but have to keep moving.
To the people who said to me, Fat is Where it`s at Pat, or Fat is In, could go where you know where.
celeste5 3/18/2013 11:27:26 AM Report


How do you know differently?
I`am of Irish decent, my Father was Irish.
seriously 3/18/2013 11:55:26 AM Report

So sorry C5, I expected that you were of an Aboriginal decent. Shouldn't assume anything.

Well: I was going to start this for the spring (s00n?)


HAPPY is the animal who is NOT tormented but instead treated with LOVING care and EQUAL respect as a CREATION, just like US, of somethig GREATER than we may EVER come to understand
celeste5 3/18/2013 12:16:30 PM Report


I do have Ojibway in my blood, more Irish though because it`s on both sides of family.
celeste5 3/18/2013 1:31:44 PM Report


I have a very good memory for dates sometimes.
That snow storm was April 6th, 1979, it was the day of my son`s birthday party and only one father walked his son over.
Our street in Bayview was closed for a few days.
mallet 3/18/2013 3:08:31 PM Report


Spellchecker says the same so my memory must be off... happens at times, but I could have sworn it was nearer the middle of the month than the beginning as there was hardly any snow before that storm rolled in. I don't think many people had plows left on vehicles, I know for sure the city didn't, all they had I think was graders which was why a lot of roads did not get cleared...
celeste5 3/18/2013 4:35:05 PM Report


That Father who walked his son over, we became friends.
He told me somebody has to show up for that little boys party, turned out he knew quite a few magic tricks and amused us, he stayed most of the day.
Hi Steve, if you remember this, thanks again.
